Ong Bak 2

Ong Bak 2, is another Tony Jaa film, starring & directed by the Bruce Lee of Thailand, Tony Jaa.

As a Kungfu movie, Ong Bak 2 is not bad. In summary, it has the following elements.

1. Fighting. There are lots & lots of fighting scenes. They are carefully staged, you have take the time and watch the fighting scenes to appreciate the great efforts the actors put in. However, some of the scenes are a bit too fake, you can clearly tell they are staged. This is a point for improvement.

2. Big scenes. It has many grand scenes, one of them is Tony taming the head elephant of a herd. That scene is nice to watch. Another scene is in the palace where the king was enjoying the dancing.

3. Costumes: The costumes are a fusion of many. You see Arab, Chinese, Thai, and Japanese ninja style of costumes in the movie. It is a bit too mixed.

4. The story is not bad considering this is a kungfu movie. It actually has a plot, revenge, betrayal, love, you have all the elements in this film.

My rating: 3/5.
